The eye-catching temporary pavilion for the Bavarian State Opera in Munich was designed by the Austrian architectural practice Coop Himmelb(l)au. Its radical facade is made from perforated and close aluminium sheet. Due to the peaked structure it absorbs the sound of the passing traffic and sets a strong contrast to the neo-classical principal building of the opera. The pavilion was designed for this year’s Opera Festival which goes on until 31 July 2010.
